    The Egg

    Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

    Lucid #198: The Egg

    I’m standing in a sparse building that looks like a cleared-out convenience store. Wife’s standing about fifteen feet away, singing expressively to the room. I’m behind a high countertop staring with little comprehension at a strange deck of cards, wondering how I’m supposed to play with them. The thought of dreaming crosses my mind and I become lucid.

    Slightly taken aback at the plunge into lucidity, I try to remember April’s Task of the Month. The actual task is to look inside an Easter egg, but I remember it as “give an egg to a DC”.

    I walk up to Wife, reach behind my back, and say, “Hey, [Wife]! Here’s an egg.” I produce a plain white egg and place it into her left hand, feeling smugly satisfied at this “flawless execution”. Wife stops singing and glares at me, slightly shaking her head. She looks pissed and her expression seems to ask me What the hell are you doing?

    Then with one swift motion, she smashes the egg all over her right shoulder. A gush of yolk and snotty-looking egg white flows down her arm. After another couple seconds of staring daggers at me, she turns her attention away, smiles, and returns to singing.

    I return to my spot behind the counter, curious again about the playing cards. They’re now face down in three separate piles. I turn a few over, but the symbols are indecipherable to me.

    Giving up on this, I wander into an adjacent room. It looks like a small basement with one high window along the wall. There’s also a wide hole near the top of one wall that looks like I could crawl through. I begin hoisting myself up to explore it, but
    the dream ends.

      So she either didn't like the egg gift or she was mad you miss remembered the task

      Nice LD either way, the smashing of the egg made me laugh! I've gotten a bit backed up on your DJ entries, so i'm going to read them all later

      @Mismagius - Heh heh, I wish I could tell you which of those it was! Hard to tell the difference between, "You got the task wrong, idiot" and "How dare you give me an egg, idiot" Imagine how she'd have reacted if I'd tried the April Fool's task on her!

      @Highlander - Thanks, although not at all in the way I had intended! I'll have to see about flying into space or setting Wife up with a whoopee cushion to see if I can do one of these the normal way.

      Congrats on the lds! I loved the way your wife's DC helped you achieve the task even if not initially planned.

      Also, the part with the cards was cool. You say the symbols were indecipherable - were they like unfamiliar letters or more like pics? Stuff like that's pretty interesting in dreams.

      Thanks, Nyx! Yeah, I honestly can't think of very many LDs that have really proceeded 100% according to any plans I might have had. Dreams seem to get a good laugh out of my "plans" and I'm back to improvising.

      The cards seemed to be like a cross between symbols (sort of like runes) and illustrations. Not only did they seem to keep shifting but I just felt very confused trying to weave together a coherent message or meaning to them. Tantalizing!

      That sounds cool! It also reminds me of tarot cards! Imagine getting a reading, of course we must be in a good mood to come up with only positive things like 'your dream powers will increase' or 'you will become a zoom master'. (well, you already are with or without the cards telling you this )

      Heh heh, maybe that was a set of tarot cards! In this case, mine was reading, "You will luck into sort of completing the task in spite of remembering virtually every detail of the task incorrectly."

      Wow, a dream tarot reading could be a very interesting scenario to walk through!
